After a week's break, NBC's 'Blindspot' returns with the third episode of Season 5, and going by the promos, it looks like another edge-on-the-seat thriller. Madeline Burke (Mary Elizabeth) is as sinister as ever, and this time she has ambushed Matthew Weitz (Aaron Abrams). She's determined to assess his loyalty at any cost. Apart from that, it looks like the team has a rather unwelcome visitor. The official synopsis of the episode reads, "When an operation goes badly, the team have to deal with a monster in their house before it can take them down one by one; Director Weitz is forced into a stressful game of psychological chess as Madeline Burke attempts to assess his loyalty."

Madeline has been upping her evil game for some time now. After planning the drone strike on the team, which killed Edgar Reade (Rob Brown), she planted a bomb at a science conference in Episode 2. Luckily, Patterson (Ashley Johnson) and Kurt Weller (Sullivan Stapleton) were there and found that the bomb was right under the stage. They communicated to Weitz, who was on stage, and told him to keep talking.  They managed to detonate the bomb in time, thanks to Rich Dotcom's help and much to Madeline's chagrin. The episode also featured Bill Nye, who reprised his real-life persona and played Patterson's father. Meanwhile, Afreen (Ami Sheth) and Briana (Amy Margaret Wilson) teamed up to help the fugitives, but Brianna gets caught by Madeline's mercenaries. And, that's when they take Weitz hostage. Madeline has some plans for her targets, as in Episode 1 of Season 5, we saw a diabolic prototype, where a man is tortured on a machine. What does she have in mind now?

The team's members are still fugitives, as Madeline had framed them for the power grid incident, and she has now tightened the security around the FBI quarters and has installed trackers on all the phones to ensure that no information is leaked out. Will Jane Doe (Jaimie Alexander) finally meet her daughter? Will Kurt be reunited with his daughter too? It remains to be seen.

This is the final season of the NBC show, and fans can't wait to know how it ends. Hopefully, it won't be a cliffhanger. 'Blindspot' airs on NBC, Thursdays at 8 pm.
